Save Food Packaging Award winners showcased at Interpack 2017

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be at Interpack 2017 from 4–10 May, where it will display the Save Food Packaging Award winners for Australia and New Zealand.

The AIP will be located in the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) area within the Save Food Pavilion, a key attraction of Interpack 2017. The WPO and its members are supporting the SAVE FOOD Initiative — a joint initiative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Messe Düsseldorf and Interpack.

In order to support SAVE FOOD, the WPO has added the Save Food Packaging Awards to the WorldStar Awards, honouring packaging solutions that distinguish themselves for reducing food losses and waste. The AIP will showcase winners including Fresh Technologies Ltd & Sealed Air Food Care for Fressure and Cryovac Freshness Plus, Woolpack Australia for Woolcool, DON KRC for Cryovac Darfresh Vacuum Skin Packaging, Botanical Food Company for Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices, SPC Ardmona for SPC ProVital Easy-Open Portion Control Fruit Cup and HealthShare NSW for My Food Choice.

Other WPO country members who will be showcasing innovative food packaging designs and concepts will include Argentina, Austria, Brazil, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, India, South Africa, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA. The APO (African Packaging Organization) and the APF (Asian Packaging Federation) have also confirmed their participation.

The AIP invites everyone to come and visit the pavilion and see how many innovative designs are coming out of Australia and New Zealand. The institute has also been announced as the host of the 2018 WorldStar Awards, to be held on 2 May 2017 at the Marriott Hotel, Surfers Paradise.
